Another backspacing question

Just going nuts trying to figure the backspacing.. Read many different combo's on the web.. Don't want them sticking way out but don't want inside scrub either..

2015 Hard Rock w/4.10's ....

Aftermarket Flat fenders

3" Mopar Fox Shock lift

Want to put on 37's Toyo Open MT's

What should the wheel size be ?

Re: Another backspacing question

So out of 80+ views...anyone know about wheels??

Sorry if this subject has been beaten with a stick..but .. First time Jeep owner here.. I don't know the skinny on what is what for Jeeps yet and don't want to make a 1000 buck mistake on wheel size..

Now if you ask me about Dodge or Chevy..I can shed some light..

Sorry, this is probably not the most visited forum for a Wrangler question.

That's probably also why he didn't bother to share the answer he found.

I would use a 17" Rim, with a width of either 8.5", or 9". 4.5 Back Spacing will keep it from rubbing.

I think you hit the nail on the head. Still a great forum and have learned a tremendous amount from everyone.
